Food and service were excellent. Would recommend 4 oz flights rather than 6 oz …. Or a choice of one or the other. Was there right after Labor Day and wish more of the summer brews were still available.

Reserved online which was super easy. Arrived, toured the Path of Life, showed up at Harpoon at the arranged time and our table outside was waiting for us. Beautiful sunny day. Great service by Olivia. Enjoyed our beer. Got nachos and a salad which were fine. Only wish is they had more vegetarian toppings for the nachos.

We absolutely love Harpoon Brewery and always try to stop when in town, at least several times a year. We had outdoor reservations for dinner (which you almost always need) and ordered a couple of beers (which are always great and ever changing) had the coconut shrimp with blueberry sauce for an appetizer. My other half had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with cheddar cheese, etc and coleslaw on the side, and I had the most delicious mango salad with red pickled onions, goat cheese and candied walnuts (that they allowed me to order in a wrap and sub fries for chips at a small charge). EVERYTHING was super delicious, as usual!! ♥️

Our server, Kayleigh was also genuine and simply wonderful. She offered helpful suggestions and possible substitutes, and was always there at just the right time. We highly recommend this establishment, they have everything from great food/drinks to an inviting indoor/outdoor atmosphere with beautiful foliage and decor, including several corn hole games outside now. It’s a great place for couples, families and friends of all ages to gather, take it all in & enjoy!! Thank you, Harpoon!! 😁

Super great waiter, great beer! This is our forth time paddling there for lunch. We made a reservation but got there very early and they took us anyway. They had 3 seasonals we live and we left with 2 cases. Food came quickly and was very good. Didn't have time this trip to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings and the music hadn't started yet I highly recommend this place!

Excellent and pleasant service. The waiter brought our friend (whose birthday it was) a little cup of Maple Creamee ice cream for dessert, even though we had not requested it. Very nice surprise!

I went to Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT with my wife and granddaughter for my birthday. We sat outside. The waitress brought me sample IPAs and i chose one. We ate and left. The waitress was very good.

I was disappointed that Harpoon, like so much of Vermont, is not responding to the new Covid situation. We have had at least 300 people vaccinated people getting Covid and 8 deaths. Most vaccinated people who have (the Delta variant of) Covid don't know it but can easily pass it on. It's time to get back to contact tracing, distancing, masks required inside and worn by all staff in businesses. Saw none of that last night. We were happy that we could eat outside, in spite of the recent rain and the tables were still spaced pretty far apart. But most people were eating inside, acting like everything is back to normal. As for the rest, the fried fish was delicious, the nachos a bit sloppy and unevenly covered with things but tasty. Less food for more money than last time, missed waffle fries. Beer pretty good, especially the Catamount, nice waiter. I do appreciate all the outdoor seating, which makes it one of the best places to go right now.

I’ve always loved my Harpoon experiences at the Windsor location, but this time around, I took my best friends out to dinner and felt completely and super rushed through our dinner and experience of the brewery. I understand trying to make money and also dealing with staffing shortages, but maybe the business should consider have a capacity limit of diners being served so everyone receives exceptional service. Don’t get me wrong, our waitress was great and she did nothing wrong. The atmosphere is just not inviting.

Food was only ok. Service was so slow. The pretzel was not a pretzel it was a big ball of bread. I wanted a pretzel, not bread Don't think we will go back.

I set up a reservation for 8 adults outside. When I found out the party might be up to 12 people, I called and spoke with the host who happily helped me adjust my reservation. We had two big tables outside and our server Jackson was awesome. He handled a large party with ease and was attentive, friendly, and all around a great server. Thank you for being flexible and helping us have a great afternoon. And to top it all off, the nachos, Rachel, fried chicken sandwich, and Caesar wrap were delicious!

long time customer - long time lover of the fish and chips. we haven't been since the pandemic so were really looking forward to our visit. we were impressed with the spacing between tables, the ease of making a reservation and our server. but sorely disappointed in the coleslaw. used to be the best around - now somewhat flavorless.

We always enjoy going to harpoon. Nice selections for lunch, but I’m always want to enjoy the barbecue Sunday. As in, a Sunday made from all the ingredients that you would have at a barbecue lunch put into an ice cream sundae even with a cherry on top

It was great outside EXCEPT I think the tables are TOO close together. You always feel like you have to adjust yourself to the people coming and going. Maybe if Harpoon moved the tables to the opposite of the way they are and staggered they could accommodate without it being a hassle.

The pulled pork tacos were excellent! Totally worth the 3 1/2 hour drive to get there.
